Format: Paperback
Since my first trip to Gettysburg I have always been drawn back to that hallowed ground. There is indeed a spirit about the place and whether it is ghostly spirits, awe born of the sacrifices made there or a combination of the two, Gettysburg is a mystical place.

Mark Nesbitt is a former Park Service employee who was stationed at Gettysburg and had several odd experiences during his tenure. His experiences, along with those of his fellow Park employees convinced the Ohio native that Gettysburg was a very haunted place. With that in mind, Nesbitt started to collect ghost stories and his collection soon led to this book and it's predecessor. There seems to be no lack of material to be found in this place where so many died such horrible deaths in July of 1863.

Mr. Nesbitt does an excellent job of providing his readers with eyewitness accounts, the single most important facet of a book like this. All of the accounts given are backed up by at least one other person's experiences and all of the accounts are of a recent nature. He also hits a good balance between exploring the history and possible origin of the haunt and telling the story of the people who have recently experienced the ghost. There are no stories found in this book that contain pages of history and then one little paragraph about the ghost, which is a flaw found in so many books of this type. This is a pitfall that I'm sure that Mr. Nesbitt had to work hard to avoid because it would have been very easy for him to ramble on about the battle itself for pages and pages. I say this because the author appears to be a student of the battle who definitely knows his stuff.

There are unfortunately a few negative aspects that I found in this book but they weren't all that distracting. For one thing, Mr.

Former Park Ranger Mark Nesbitt has over the years gathered many ghost stories from other park rangers, visitors and people who live in the area. Nesbitt tries to gather factual data on the stories he receives so he can offer a background as to why these ghost stories may have evolved. His stories are usually quite interesting and do not just talk about battlefield soldiers, civilians alike are also involved in famous ghost stories in Gettysburg! Buy all 5 books, there worth it! Each has many short stories that are easy and fun to read.

The book was on the short side but very interesting.
It was also very reasonable to purchase. I love american history. It had the ghost stories on the battlegrounds and Pennyslvania Hall, Triangular field, The Rose farm, and more. The Civil war had 51,000 total casualties so there are a lot of people that got killed. Paranormal activity is high. I recommend this easy reading book.

If you like the civil war and ghost stories then try Ghosts of Gettysburg books I,II,III by Mark Nesbit. Mark has a way with words that make these books so hauntingly intersting that you can not put them down. The books center on Gettysburg's tragic past and what now proceds the horrible carnage with none exesiting voices,slaming doors,and brief glimpes of the past. The only thing that Mark needs to do is to make more books on Gettysburg's new inhabitants

All of these ghostly tales are little gems, and they're great for retelling. You'll find yourself not only immersed in ghosts but a little American history to boot. My hat's off to Mark Nesbitt. Well done!
